​​​​​HOW TO TASTE EVOO



SWIRL
Begin by pouring a tablespoon of olive oil into a small glass. Cup the bottom of the glass in your hand to warm the oil; cover the top with your other hand and swirl gently to release the aromas.

SMELL
Bring the glass to your nose and smell the oil. Take note of the aromas

SLURP
Next, take a slurp. As you do, touch your tongue to the back of your top teeth and inhale. This spreads the oil in your mouth and helps release the flavors of the olive oil.

SWALLOW
Finally, swallow the oil and take note of the flavors you experience.


A mild stinging in your throat is a good thing and demonstrates that the oil is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols.   Bitterness at the back of your tongue is also a good thing and is a sign that what you are tasting is indeed an extra virgin olive oil.

Here, in the beautiful Umpqua Valley. we have noticed many similarities between EVOO and wine. 
As a general rule more people are familiar with wine than EVOO.  Below is a comparison to shed some light on the properties of our EVOO.

​What characteristics does our EVOO and local wine share?  

HOW TO TASTE EVOO

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

​Believe it or not they are both considered a fruit juice.  YES!!!  Both are considered delicate and should be stored away from heat and light.  Once opened they should be consumed within a short period of time.  When stored correctly, Oregon Olive Oil will last between one and two years, the wine only one week.  They are both considered an epicurean delight, high quality products grown 100% in Oregon.  The type of varietals of fruit will influence the flavor and properties of both EVOO and wine.  We only use Arbequina and Arbosana olives, peppery and  green tasting high in antioxidants.  Both are made by 
first hand-picking and then crushing the fruit.  
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is cold pressed in the “production “process and aged for only 30 days before being hand-bottled.  Wine takes much longer. Also unlike wine EVOO does not continue to age at home.​
